that isn't the case sorry, here in the UK its super bad this year because of the yield from renewables being very poor, there is a load of other nonsense posted in this thread about renewables and how you buy them. At work I don't buy anything other than renewables, we don't use a sausage of gas
Sorry, but that is completely incorrect. BT are buying renewable energy credits, you are not buying renewable energy unless they have a direct line to the wind farm turbines (which they don’t). What does BT (or other companies) do when the wind doesn’t blow and there is no ‘green energy’ coming down the pipes? They have to use gas powered electricity.
All the electricity is in the NTS no matter how it produced, so it is a total green fairytale that you can say you only use ‘green electricity’.
And as for needing gas, you cannot run a gas boiler on electricity.
